ESAs overnight stayJul 23, 2020

Our co-op is a no-dog building, but the board accommodates ESAs and service animals with a physician's letter.
The question is must we allow the shareholder with an approved ESA to have a second ESA of a friend/relative visit and be allowed to stay overnight? Our current pet regulations say only one dog per unit, but again this is about a visiting ESA.

ESA Overnight Stay - NYC Jul 24, 2020

While I understand that you choose to live in a pet restricted community, it is difficult to understand why a situation like this this would bother anyone.

ERA's are obedient, well behaved and quiet. They provide emotional support, assistance , companionship and love to their owners.

Your house rules limit the number of ESA's a shareholder may own. It doesn't infringing upon a resident's rights by restricting an overnight guest who also requires an ESA.
